hey all this is Donnie!!!

thank YOU! to all the people that really look into people's needs and support them through any kind of transition everyone is always at some point of their lives, this is just a small example of how humans can work together towards empowering what we forget all the time, humankind. Not just because this is a subject that will obviously get attention but because any kind of subject that draws attention has to be queer in any given way, not to say weird... maybe if we listen to people, to what they're going through, to what they have to say, maybe we'll understand whoever is right next to us and help them the better way we can. #betterworld and thank you MxVBond for sharing.

common knowledge

“Public rituals can…be understood as social practices which generate common knowledge…A public ritual is not just about the transmission of meaning from a central source to each member of an audience; it is also about letting audience members know what other audience members know.”

OSCAR NIGHT (from 1976 until now...)

Peter Finch as Howard Beale in Sydney Lumet's "NETWORK" (1976):

I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!' I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"

SOLARIS / MOON - Daniel Pinheiro - 2013

Photoset: Here

readings: Jean Cocteau's White Book

"Once a Narcissus who was pleasuring himself brought his mouth up to the mirror, glued it to the glass and completed the adventure with himself. Invisible as a Greek god, I pressed my lips against his and imitated his gestures. He never knew that the mirror, instead of reflecting was participating, that it was alive and loved him."

Jean Cocteau - White Book

High Saturated Beauty

Against snow, a tall Beautiful Being. Whistlings of death and circles of muffled music make this adored body rise, swell and tremble like a ghost; scarlet and black wounds open in the magnificent flesh. The actual colours of life darken, dance, and emerge around the Vision as it takes shape. And shudders arise and rumble, and the frenetic taste of these effects weighted down with the mortal whistlings and raucous music that the world, far behind us, hurls at our mother of beauty, - she backs off, she stands up. Oh! our bones are clad with a new loving body.

O the ashen face, the horsehair escutcheon, the arms of crystal! the cannon on which I must hurl myself through the scrum of trees and light air!


micro-revolution grounded on senses

How could hedonism, Epicureanism or libertinism ever be truly revolutionary? They all lead us back to ourselves, to our own blind and lonely isolation. Right? They tend toward making us more self-centred, more narcissistic, the last thing we need in this dreadful age. Correct?

We disagree. We don’t need a Way of Life, there are many. The nature of things forces us to regard and trust our senses above all else; they are our guide and our fate.

We rebel against mechanisation and puritanism equally. We call for a micro-revolution grounded in the senses.

— Homo Protocols, January 2013, Berlin (via homo-online)

“It is a matter of the Revolution—the one which, until such time as there is a classless society, will substitute for the narrow tyranny of a dehumanized bourgeoise the preponderance of the only class that still has a universal mission, because it suffers in the flesh from all the wrongs of history, from all the universal wrongs: the proletariat.”

Aimé Césaire, “Discourse on Colonialism”, 1972

Le Temps de l'Amour by Wes Anderson

still from Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Laura Bishop:  I'm sorry, Walt.
Walt Bishop:  ...which injuries are you apologizing for, specifically?
Laura Bishop:  Specifically? The ones that still hurt...
Walt Bishop:  Half of those were self-inflicted.
Walt Bishop ...I hope the roof flies off and I get sucked up into space. You'll be better off without me.
Laura Bishop [quietly]: Stop feeling sorry for yourself.
Walt Bishop: ...why?
Laura Bishop: We're all they've got, Walt.
Walt Bishop: ...it's not enough.
